Hey doll hey!!! How’s your day/night going? Great I hope. I finally slept well!! I got up around 8:30 AM. It’s raining here in Florida so I am in a world of pain today…. because of it I wont be cooking dinner… we are going to have sandwiches and chips instead.
Today I am wearing Michael Kors Sexy Blossom perfume.
I have been hurting so much that instead of going around my makeup collection and picking out products to use for the day I have simply been swapping out my foundation and concealer and just utilizing the products I have been for the past few days … I probably will be swapping out my daily makeup basket tonight as I am running out of looks for the Juvia’s Place palette.
Well … let’s jump into today’s Face of the Day …
Base: I first primed my problematic pore areas with Tarte Clean Slate Timeless Smoothing Primer ($39 at Ulta) and then primed the full face using It Cosmetics Pores No More Primer (discontinued) and I then added a bit of glow to the skin by using BECCA Backlight Priming Filter ($39 at Ulta and Sephora). My foundation today is Benefit Hello Happy Flawless Brightening Foundation ($30 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade 4 Medium Neutral. I contoured using Charlotte Tilbury Contour Wand ($38 at Sephora) in the shade Medium/Dark. I highlighted the tops of my cheek bones, bridge of the nose, center of the chin, and high points of my forehead using Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Light Wand ($38 on the Beautylish website). I concealed my under eyes using 3 dots of NYX Born to Glow Radiant Concealer ($9 at Ulta) in the shade Fair. I set my under eyes using Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eyes ($28 at Ulta) in the shade 1 and then set the rest of my face using the Too Faced Born This Way Ethereal Setting Powder ($33 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade Translucent. I then warmed up the perimeter of my face using Tarte Limited Edition Park Ave Princess Waterproof Face & Body Bronzer ($34 at Ulta). I am using Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder ($4 at Walmart) in the shade 011 creamy natural as my touch up powder today.
Eyes: I set my brows using Believe Beauty Eyebrow Styling Gel ($4 at Dollar General) in clear and then filled in my brows using Benefit Precisely My Brow Pencil ($24 at Ulta and Sephora) in the shade 4.5 and then I primed my lids using P.Louise Base ($10 pound sterling/ $12.08 USD on their website… can also be found on the Morphie website for $15) in the shade Rumour 0.5 and I also used a little of this to cut my brow line. For today’s eye look I used the Juvia’s Place The Nubian Eyeshadow Palette ($20 at Ulta). I started with the 2nd shade of the 1st row (an orange based tan matte)… I buffed it in from lash line to brow bone. I then used the 2nd shade of the 2nd row (light gold metallic) on the inner 2/3 of the mobile lid. I went in with the 4th shade of the 2nd row (bronze gold metallic) and patted that over the middle 1/3 and a little into the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid. I then went in with the 3rd shade of the 1st row (nude brown matte) and buffed that into the outer 1/3 of the mobile lid and the outer v of the crease. I then took a bit more of the bronze gold metallic and tapped that over the middle 1/3 again to blend the inner and outer 1/3 together. I then went in with a combo of the nude brown shade and the 2nd shade of the 3rd row (brown matte) and deepened just the very outer part of the outer v and outer 1/3 of the mobile lid. I then highlighted my brow line using L’Oreal Infallible 24-HR Eyeshadow ($9.47 at CVS) in the shade 899 Endless Pearl (a creamy vanilla matte). I created a subtle drop shadow using more of the orange base tan shade and then I took more of the nude brown and then the brown matte shades and buffed those into the lower lash line. I highlighted the inner corners using Hikari Creme Pigment ($15 on their website) in the shade Honey Dew (icy pink with slight silver reflect metallic). I lined my lower waterlines using BH Cosmetics Powder Pencil (originally on sale for $8 but on sale for $6 on their website) in the shade Beige Nude. I then coated my upper and lower lashes with 2 coats of Milani Dangerous Lengths Mascara ($9.99 at Ulta).
Cheeks and Lips: For blush today I am wearing Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-HR Blush ($29 at Ulta) in the shade Captivating (bright peach matte). I lined and filled in my lips using NYX Suede Matte Lip Liner ($4 at Ulta) in the shade Wipped Caviar (a reddish pink nude) and then topped that off with L’Oreal Rouge Signature Lightweight Matte Lip Stain ($5.99 at Ulta) in the shade 448 I-Tease (a soft taupey pink matte) and felt that this was too muted so I tapped a few dots of Makeup Geek Creme Stain ($11.99 on their website) in the shade Jitterbug (an intense coral matte) and then I felt that this was too dry looking so I topped the whole lip off using NARS Lip Gloss ($24 on the NARS website) in the shade Stripe Tease (Sheer champagne nude).
First I’d like to apologies for my harsh nose contour… boy was I heavy handed today!!
I can’t wait for my brows to full grow in. I want to reshape them so badly so that they at least have the same round about shape to them. I have 1 straight brow and 1 Instagram arched brow. I don’t know how that happened seeing as though I have my brow Micro-bladed but it’s the bane of my existence.
I’ve been collecting a ton of Fibromyalgia memes that I am going to be doing a blog post on shortly… I thought it would be a fun little post.
I’ve also seen a few Instagram makeup looks that I’m keen to try.
Let’s see how I feel tomorrow on whether or not I’ll try one of those looks or not.
Well that’s all for now dolls. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day/night and thank you for spending time with me…. Remember ….. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
